22 Years Old
My story starts a year ago, one evening i went to the hospital with a horrible head ache and blurred vision, it was written off as a migrane. To make a long story shorter i went through six weeks of headaches, temporary vision loss, vomiting, and loss of muscle control among other things. Finally some one had the bright idea to send me to see a neurologist who promptly performed a spinal tap which came back positive for a viral infection, they never found out what strain i had. Since that day i have had multiple spinal taps and imaging. I still have poor vision and severe headaches, I will have my first shunt surgery soon and hopfully this will take care of my issues. I hope my story will let people understand the lack of information and suport for victims of these horrible dieseases.
